I have used this sand before. It removes paint and rust reasonably well but it is a relatively smooth sand that doesn't leave the metal surface "prepped" for the primer/paint to grab onto.

I have never had this problem.

BUT when I used medium grit B.B. it was too coarse, and raised peaks
of steel, causing the paint ot not cover these little peaks, and
led to rust.

What did you use instead ?
